Remember as a kid getting your first firework sparklers and your mom yelling “Don’t run with the sparklers”! You’d watch it burn down to the end of the silver stuff and think (Oh man, it’s over already)?
What about Glow worms? When lit they oozed out … I don’t know what. You were left with these long, charred, cheese puff things. You saw the flames and smelled the smoke. Cool man!
July 5, on the ground lie little pieces of paper and red sticks from the — cover your ears — bottle rockets.
One year we did not have more fireworks so my dad lit a road flair in the back yard. We sat around and watched the awesomeness.
May watching bright colored lights give us strength.
If you have ever been in a musical group you know that musicians are special people. I was at a concert recently and was inspired to design something that had to do with sheet music but in a new way. What if the different people in the band were actually notes and symbols.

I found the font “Maris Halftone Medium” on MyFonts.com and I really like it. The font has an uneven outline and whimsical, pinhole texture. The texture does not show at the size I used it here but would be cute if used hundreds of points high on a banner or something. A lot of the letters in Maris have fun flourishes that worked out well for my Happy Birthday design.
I love the boldness and colors used in comics. A lot of movies are comic themed and I manage to see most of them. I wanted to make my own comic blast design using classic colors. The bursts are sourced from the font “Altemus RoughCuts” that I bought on Myfonts.com.
